The parade at the Sorento Fall Festival began in sprinkles Sunday at 4 p.m., but it wasn’t completed.
As the units were going through the downtown area, the rain clouds opened up causing a downpour and ending the parade.

A veterans’ color guard led the parade, followed by a wagon with veterans from the Pocahontas American Legion.
